5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic film, moving, funny, great performances and Samuel playing incredible blues!!, 18 Nov 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Black Snake Moan [DVD] (DVD)
Found out about this film whilst watching a american online show with the black keys performing where they mentioned one of their songs was used in the trailer and the movie. From there checked out the trailer and look really bizzare, half humour half drama and some superb actors in it. Samuel L Jackson, Christina Ricci and even Justin Timberlake. From start to finish this film moves with you with the fine performances, deals with some complex issues including sexual addiction, possession, adultery, an extreme anxiety condition, race and religion and all whilst being soundtracked by some amazing blues music by The Black Keys amongst others and there is one incredible scene where Samuel is playing and singing the blues like he'd been born to do it!!!

Fact: He learnt guitar for this film, this happened after he was given a guitar as a giveaway at a previous event then someone approached him and suggested that he really should try and find a script where he could play a blues player/singer. He learnt guitar while he was filming snakes on a plane i believe (can't remember for sure, but think that is the case).

The soundtrack is awesome too Black Snake Moan and also Black Keys are well worth checking out. These are my favourite albums from them: Brothers Attack & Release and Magic Potion

I will be watching this film again many times as there is absolutely no negatives about this at all!!

5/5

Extras: There is a superb making of documentary which made me love this film even more!!!

5/5

Can't recommend this enough, overlooked for way too long.
